Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: On a wing and a Fun Fare

Fun Fare – Chinese Walls. Super World Indie Tune Of The Day – 08.10.2018 foto by Felix Pacholleck “Chinese Walls” stabs you right between the eyes, the high-wire basslines, ridiculously playful keyboards and the call-and-response vocals splash across a new-wave arthouse pop landscape that reeks of sophistication. The video by Christoph Müller reflects the unease…

Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Voodoo Beach put a spell on me.

Voodoo Beach – Ozean. Super World Indie Tune Of The Day – 09.09.2018. photo by Joseph Devitt Tremblay Dark, primitive and unsettling, Ozean is the lead track from the new EP by Berlin’s Voodoo Beach. The minimalist arrangement allows the individual elements to shine through the delicious gloom the band creates – the swamp-rock rhythm…

Fun Fare are a barrel of laughs.

Fun Fare is an experimental-pop lab peopled by top sound scientists, Friedrich Günther, Julia Boehme, Joseph Heinze and Jakob Zander who all…

LEOPRRRDS are purrrfect

LEOPRRRDS – Hot Like Lava “Hot Like Lava” (on Späti Palace) is the new EP by Berlin-based trio LEOPRRRDS. These songs are dark, anxious and highly-strung. All members of the band share vocals, turning these VU-tinged vignettes into conversation pieces. Underpinned by louche bass and frequent changes of tempo, the band eschew classic song structures…

Check out Leoprrrds, they’re grrrrreat!

Leoprrrds – Out Of Practice First time on SWIT for these cool cats. This is “Out Of Practice”. It’s a bit of an odyssey, starting off with a spoken word, beat poem and building into a stripped-down, urgent, raw cry, kind of reminiscent of Violent Femmes, it’s got that art rock thing going on, love…

I’d share my Curly Wurly* with Girlie

Girlie – Im Automaten Fancy some noisy, tuneful krautrock? You’ve come to the right place old bean. “Im Automaten” clocks in at just over 7 minutes and is worth every second, in fact, it’s pretty addictive, love the guitar work especially and frankly, it’s the whole vibe of the thing. This is the second signe…

Highest Sea

Highest Sea – Hawaii What did the Kerry woman say when she got to Honolulu? Hawaii? But seriously folks here’s the new single from Highest Sea and it is called Hawaii, it’s from the rather wonderful “Haunted Hearts” EP, released earlier in the year on Späti Palace. It’s another jangle-tastic, wistful, atmospheric beauty, as usual,…

I dance the tarantella to the songs of Kala Brisella

Kala Brisella – Immer Neu Immer Fresh I’m not throwing bananas up O’Connell Street when I say that “Always New Always Fresh” (Immer Neu Immer Fresh) is entirely appropriate when it comes to Kala Brisella for this band have turned nervous energy into an art form and this is another blisteringly good, tumultuous cut from…

I can’t beleaf how good Strand Child are

Strand Child – Misterio Misterio (Späti Palace) is the new single from Strand Child. It’s a lo-fi so-fi, slacker summer jam with just a touch of marmalade and maybe even a little ginger. It’s the turning of the seasons. It’s a tuneful spoonful too. Any song that can make people bury their phones, take their…

I’m all at (Highest) Sea

Highest Sea – La Bella Soledad Was a song title ever so appropriate? This evokes beautiful loneliness perfectly. La Belle Soledad is taken from Highest Sea’s recent EP “Haunted Hearts” (Späti Palace), it’s like Nancy Wilson fronting the Jesus and Mary Chain in one of their more contemplative moments. Yeah, it’s that good, Leïla Zanzibar’s…

I found my chinchilla listening to Kala Brisella

Kala Brisella – Im Quartier I found my chinchilla listening to Kala Brisella, and who could blame her. This is the band’s second single and second time on SWIT too. Their debut album was just out Friday on Späti Palace and we’ll be following up on that in the next week or two. In the…
